Subject Re: running multiple topologies in same cluster
Date Mon, 01 Feb 2016 23:00:17 GMT
hi Spico,

As Bobby said, native Storm is going to have better support for this soon.

FWIW, there is also the storm-on-mesos project, which we've been running on
for almost 2 years at Groupon.



   - storm's logviewer is unsupported
   - scheduling can be suboptimal, causing topologies of different "size"
   (resource requirements) to starve each other
      - side effect of needing to dynamically calculate storm "slots" from
      mesos resource offers, my team has a framework change we are testing that
      will improve that behavior.
   - it's relatively complex to operate since there are so many different
   moving parts / components
      - mesos-master
      - mesos-slave/agent (it's being renamed)
      - storm nimbus (MesosNimbus -> the mesos scheduler)
      - storm supervisor (MesosSupervisor -> the mesos executor)
      - storm worker (the mesos task)
      - ZooKeeper
   - it probably won't work nicely with all the fancy security stuff that
   has been added to Storm in 0.10.0+
